WHO DIED AND left Cindy Sheehan in charge? We put her in charge the press, the politicians, the people. We put her in charge not just of her own message and her mission, which is all she had asked for, but we cranked up her voice to equal volume with the man she's calling out: POTUS himself, George W. Bush.
Let me get this straight... We, the people, "cranked up her voice" equal to the President of the United States? Huh. What edition of the LA Times do I run? Because I've got some immigration and UN corruption stories I'd like to run.
"It's easy and it's brainless," Mr. Klein said in a telephone interview, explaining why cable news outlets have gravitated to [Natalee Holloway]. "They're looking for an ongoing drama" along the lines of the NBC crime show "Law & Order," he said, adding "Except 'Law & Order' doesn't do the same plot every night."
Jon, if you hadn't run 10 stand-ups a day from the Cindy Sheehan vigil, you might have a speck of credibility on this subject, but you did, and you don't. These comments wouldn't have anything to do with the whole CNN lineup (combined) being unable to beat the ratings of a single O'Reilly Factor, would it? Ouch.
Tell me if this surprises you. NPR is promoting the idea that rising oil prices will impact the midterm elections and, of course, will be the thing that turns the public against Republicans. If there was ever anyone at NPR who prayed to a higher being, this is what they would pray for.
How do they justify this hypothesis? Because in 1980, long gas lines "cost Carter his re-election".
1. Gas wasn't the only problem with Carter. 2. There are currently no gas lines that I know of, only high prices. 3. Things have changed significantly since 1980, especially in media and the access people have to information from more than 4 or 5 television monopolists and a band of like-minded newspapers.
